In our text, mathematical modeling and difference and differential equations lead, closely follow, and extend the elements of calculus. Chapter one introduces mathematical modeling in which students write descriptions of some observed processes and from these descriptions derive first order linear difference equations whose solutions can be compared with the observed data. In chapters in which the derivatives of algebraic, exponential, or trigonometric functions are defined, biologically...

Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems is written for students in science, engineering, and mathematics who have completed calculus through partial differentiation. In writing this book I have been guided by the these principles: 1. An elementary text should be written so the student can read it with comprehension without too much pain. I have tried to put myself in the student�s place, and have chosen to err on the side of too much detail rather than not enough. 2. An...

The textbook was developed over several years and has been used in regular and honors-level classroom settings and in distance learning classes. This textbook is intended for introductory statistics courses being taken by students at two� and four�year colleges who are majoring in fields other than math or engineering. Intermediate algebra is the only prerequisite. The book focuses on applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it.

Parts I and II deal with two fundamental aspects of combinatorics: enumeration and graph theory. �Enumeration� can mean either counting or listing things. Mathematicians have generally limited their attention to counting, but listing plays an important role in computer science, so we discuss both aspects.

The laws of physics are generally written down as differential equations. Therefore, all of science and engineering use differential equations to some degree. Understanding differential equations is essential to understanding almost anything you will study in your science and engineering classes. You can think of mathematics as the language of science, and differential equations are one of the most important parts of this language as far as science and engineering are concerned.

Who cares about calculus? Well, calculus is used in virtually every branch of science where a problem can be mathematically modeled and an optimal solution is desired. In applications, quite often you �know� or strongly suspect something based on your understanding of the general principles in that �eld. Calculus allows you to quantify your expectations.

We also recognize that many students who hesitate to ask for help from an instructor need a readable text, and we have tried to anticipate the questions that go unasked. The wide range of examples in the text are meant to augment the "favorite examples" that most instructors have for teaching the topics in...

A differential equation is an equation expressing a relation between a function and its derivatives. When the function in the differential equation has a single independent variable we call it an ordinary differential equation. That is, the derivatives are ordinary derivatives, not partial derivatives. This course is almost exclusively concerned with ordinary differential equations.

Quantum Theory encompasses our best understanding of how nature works: what will be the result of any experiment. We arbitrarily split the universe into �system� (wave function), an environment or measurement (Hamiltonian, or operator) and a measureable quantity (eigenvalue). There is no unique associated mathematics, but since all measurements on systems yield real numbers, we need mathematics which gives real eigenvalues. So it is a premise of quantum theory that any measurable quantity...

There�s more to the subject of vector calculus...There are a couple of types of line integrals and there are some basic theorems that relate the integrals to the derivatives, sort of like the fundamental theorem of calculus that relates the integral to the anti-derivative in one dimension.

Solving problems is the most common task used to measure understanding in technical and scientific courses, and in many aspects of life as well. In general, problem solving requires factual and procedural knowledge in the area of the problem, plus knowledge of numerous schema, plus skill in overall problem solving. Schema is loosely defined as a �specific type of problem� such as principal, rate, and interest problems, one-dimensional kinematic problems with constant acceleration, etc...

The �rst rule in understanding vector calculus is draw lots of pictures. This subject can become rather abstract if you let it, but try to visualize all the manipulations. Try a lot of special cases and explore them. Keep relating the manipulations to the underlying pictures and don�t get lost in the forest of in�nite series. Along with the pictures, there are three types of derivatives, a couple of types of integrals, and some theorems relating them.

Detailed Program - We shall not develop straightaway a correct theory including many particles. Instead we follow the historicaldevelopment. We try to make a relativistic quantum theory of one particle, �nd out how far we can goand where we get into trouble. Then we shall see how to change the theory and get over the trouble byintroducing many particles. Incidentally, the one�particle theories are quite useful, being correct to a goodapproximation in many situations where creation of new...

Chapter 11 presents the basic formalism of tensors as they are most commonly used by applied mathematicians, physicists and engineers. Finally, Chapter 12 serves as an introduction to the theory of infinite-dimensional vector spaces

This module is a mixture of abstract theory, with rigorous proofs, and concrete calculations with matrices. The abstract component builds on the notions of subspaces and linear maps to construct the theory of bilinear forms i.e. functions of two variables which are linear in each variable, dual spaces (which consist of linear mappings from the original space to the underlying �eld) and determinants. The concrete applications involve ways to reduce a matrix of some speci�c type (such as...
